Fresh, crisp green beans with flavorful shallots and tomato! A simple and delicious side, especially in summer with seasonal produce. (Vegan, gluten-free.)
As much as I love eating green beans plain, it is nice to jazz them up sometimes too.
They pair great with this simple warm tomato shallot dressing.
It has a nice zing from the red wine vinegar, and sweetness from the fresh, juicy tomatoes.
The leftovers are great too - I even eat them cold.
It is such a beautiful side dish to enjoy in the summer time with tasty, fresh garden produce.
I love checking out our local food co-op, farm stands, and farmers markets during the summer months. The seasonal produce is so fresh.
Hope you enjoy this simple side dish as much as we do. Now that fresh green beans are back in season what is your favorite way to eat them?
